QMUL Pint of Science coordinator for the 5th time and post-doc looking at how blood vessels grow during disease. Beside science and public engagement, I love food (a lot), cooking it, playing football or tennis and reading. FYI, I'm the one in the background of the photo.

QMUL Pint of Science coordinator for the 3rd time and a post-doc working on therapeutic anti-angiogenic peptides. Massive fan of trying out lots of new food, going to the gym to work said food off and travelling the world! Looking forward to seeing some of QMUL's finest research over a cheeky pint!

I’m a 3rd year PhD student and my project focuses on the effect of ageing on inflammation, particularly how the interaction between immune cells and blood vessels changes as we get older. I love travelling to new places, outdoor activities such as canoeing and rock climbing.

Hi, I’m Caroline a first year PhD student who loves learning and talking about science. To be able to combine that with a few drinks in a pub is right up my street. If I’m not in a pub or in the lab you’ll find me on the ice playing ice hockey. So let’s drink and chat science!

I’m a first year PhD student researching protein co-trafficking in vascular endothelial cells. I thought this was some sort of inter-university brewing competition when I agreed to help, but organising science outreach is great too.
